First ever gravity drained twin turbo kit!

I've been the proud guinea pig for this prototype mid mount twin turbo kit. After several months of testing it's finally done. Made some great power numbers with it. My car is a 2013 2LS V6 auto and running only 11 psi it made 510 hp and 487 tq at the wheels. It spools up like a supercharger with the twin Garrett GTX28's. The oil drains back to the pan via gravity and I don't need to mess with an oil scavenge pump. These GTX's are also water cooled for like OEM reliability. We will continue pushing the limits with this setup but for now I'm going to enjoy it at 11 psi. Here are a couple pics of the prototype kit in all it's glory. I've been told the guys at JE/Sikky will produce this kit in limited numbers and will require it to be installed in house for the time being if anyone is interested in getting this same setup.

Here you can see the massive front mount hidden behind the grill


Top view showing the neatly routed intercooler piping. This left room for all my OEM components and a functioning AC system.


Bottom view showing the dual air intakes


Here is a shot of the massive dual 3" stainless steel down pipes. Notice how everything is tucked away nice and neat. Nothing hanging down below the bottom of the cross member.


Here is a look at the driver side turbo from the bottom. You can see the water lines and drain line.


And passenger side from the top. Tucked in with factory exhaust manifold heat shield in place!


Here you can see the HKS BOV and cold side of the 3" intercooler pipe on the driver side


and the hot side of the intercooler pipe on the passenger side


here is a topside view of the driver side turbo


As you can see everything is neatly tucked into the provided space almost like it was OEM. Very pleased with how this setup turned out, but didn't expect anything less from the guys building this kit. Here is a video of the kit in action on the dyno

Let me know what you guys think! Looking forward to getting it down the quarter mile soon hopefully.

Not sure on that. Would be best to reach out to them on it. Being that it's a package deal with everything turn key tuned and drive it out the door I would imagine it would be expensive but probably not much different than the other available options by the time you factor in all the other stuff like labor, dyno, fuel etc.....

Here is a great thread on how to properly do a system on the twin turbo V6:

The build is running perfectly so far and the turbos spool up very fast! I was unable to actually take her out and drive during the week since I was in my lab preparing my senior thesis and getting my peer reviewed research ready to get published. However, I put on 80 miles today on I-95 and I had a smile on my face very mile
